My husband and I both have long, silent-letter-ridden last names. We have no real familial attachments. I didn’t change my name when we married for work reasons, but now… we’ve talked about making a new last name for our own family!
The problem is my first name is three-syllables, and his is one.
My name is pronounced as “Arena [name_u]Leigh[/name_u]”, his is “[name_u]Bryce[/name_u] [name_m]Aaron[/name_m]”. Whatever goes with my name seems to be difficult to say with his, and vice versa. I like the name [name_m]King[/name_m], [name_m]Knight[/name_m], [name_u]Wilde[/name_u], and [name_u]Grey[/name_u]… but they sound odd with his one-syllable first name. [name_u]Kingsley[/name_u], Knightly, I enjoy both these names, but they become silly with my full name.
I’d love for a last name after an author (hence [name_u]Wilde[/name_u]) or something to that effect. “[name_u]Greyson[/name_u]” could work. Any suggestions?
It’s odd because most people are looking for first and middle names, not last
